these fruity overnight Oats are currently my favorite breakfast or snack for the office and they are healthy as well. until now i only made overnight oats with milk and on the chocolatey side. but they are also srumpitous with fruit juice, fruits, greek yoghurt and nuts! the oats are fruity, topped with creamy yoghurt (if you want it a bit lighter use natural yoghurt) and a fresh, crunchy apple and nuts. sooooo good quickly set up the night before, the next morning just put yoghurt and apple on top – done. if you prepare it in a screw-top jar you have a ready breakfast to go or a small snack for the office. the mixture reminds of bircher muesli, but you can also put raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, peaches and and and on top of the yoghurt or mix different kinds of dried fruits like apricots, plums, raisins etc in with the oats. since i am not the biggest fan of dried fruits, the freeze dried bananas and strawberries are the perfect compromise for me. you can also use any kind of juice that you like, i just happen to really dig peach juice. the amounts in the recipe are approximately – i usually just fill the oats in so they fill about half of the glass and top them with the juice. be aware that they will swell and you still need enough room for the yoghurt and fresh fruits.
ingredients (1 jar 300 ml)
- 40 g oats
- 100 ml peach juice
- 1 small handful of dried banana chips and dried strawberries, broken into pieces
- 50 g greek yoghurt
- 50 g apple, cut into small pieces
- 1 handful chopped walnuts
the night before fill the oats into the jar, mix in the dried fruits and fill with juice just until everythings covered. give it a good stir. covered, place in fridge over night (or at least 1 hour).
the next morning spoon the yoghurt on top, sprinkle with apple and nuts.
